The New York state-owned ski center in the Adirondacks plans to replace its 30-year-old triple lift with a high-speed quad lift.
Management at Gore Mountain Ski Center in Johnsburg plans to install the Adirondack Express lift this summer. The existing triple lift is the oldest high-speed triple lift in North America.
The new lift will cost more than $6 million! But the new system will be a high-speed detachable quad lift with a capacity of 2,400 people per hour, 300 more than the current lift.
Gore is operated by the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority. The authority also runs the ski areas at Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid and Belleayre Mountain in the Catskills.
